America, Send Me Your Fruitcake


Gourd Fruit by Andrea Jansen
Unfortunately, I can’t blame childbearing on the current state of my body.  I wish I could go back to thinking of Orange Peel simply in terms of fruitcake, which I happen to love.  Whenever I see holiday commercials about the traveling fruitcake, I long to be the lucky recipient; but I also loved airline food when it was provided, eating things in the air I’d never touch on the ground (i.e., date nut bread with cream cheese).  I used to ask my neighbors for their untouched leftovers; my boss always sat somewhere distant on business trips.
